Responses to the ALC decision

A few days ago, the Agricultural Land Commission announced its decision to keep the Garden City Lands in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). Since then, there’s been a flurry of messages to the Garden City Lands Coalition email. They are much appreciated. Here’s a sampling (last updated on Feb. 18).

 

This is the greatest news for Richmond and a BIG thank you for all your hard work efforts and persistence. The politicians are finally listening.

Congratulations on the Garden City Lands decision!!!  It is resounding with us in Skagit County, Washington, as well.

I know it was a long, hard fight and there is more yet to do. This was a BIG win and definitely gives momentum to your cause.  Again, congratulations from all of us of kindred spirit south of the border.

Sincerely,
Gene Derig

It almost seems, in these trying times, that common sense may finally be peeking through the fogged minds of greed.
